Is Florida a No-Fault Divorce State?
Florida is a no-fault divorce state. In essence, the only basis needed for a spouse to obtain a dissolution of marriage in Florida is that “irreconcilable differences” have arisen. This can be very difficult for some Christians to accept because this means that even if you do not want a divorce, do not believe in divorce and refuse to get divorced – the Court will grant a divorce. For those forced into this process, it is imperative that you do so with Christian counsel.
Our team offers assistance in a variety of areas relating to divorce, including:

- Child custody

How to Qualify for Simplified Dissolution of Marriage
For a simple divorce that is much quicker than others, couples may ask the court for a simplified dissolution of marriage. To qualify for this, here are some requirements needed:
- The marriage must have no minor children
- At the time of the filing, the wife must not be pregnant
- Each spouse is required to attend the divorce hearing
- Both spouses must complete a financial affidavit and a property settlement agreement
Reasons to Get an Uncontested Divorce in Florida
Whether a Florida spouse has been married for six months or several decades, any number of issues can cause a serious enough breakdown in a relationship that a decision is made to call it quits.
What concerns many spouses is that they have no desire to get stuck in a long, drawn-out court battle. They'd rather resolve issues, sign papers and move on in life.
- If a spouse is more concerned about gaining the upper hand in property division proceedings or child custody matters, things can get quite messy in court.
- If both spouses are willing to cooperate and avoid negativity, however, a settlement may be negotiable without ever stepping foot inside a courtroom.
- It is also helpful to focus on the future rather than dwelling on what went wrong in a marriage.
Regardless of the exact issues that have led to a marital break-up, many people who have divorced say their most valuable coping skill was their ability to forgive. Letting go of hurt feelings may not only help achieve a peaceful settlement, it can also pave the way toward a happier future. If a legal problem arises during divorce proceedings or at any time thereafter, a person who wishes to keep things civil can turn to an experienced attorney for support rather than risk confrontation by trying to resolve a legal issue without representation.
